Emma by Jane Austen - Chiltern Classics Edition

£20.00

 

'If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more...'

As Emma Woodhouse attempts to orchestrate the romantic lives of those around her, Austen expertly reveals that she may not be as much in control as she would like to believe. Emma was first published in 1816, the year before Jane Austen died. Austen herself thought that Emma was someone "no one but myself will much like". In spite of Austen's fears, the indomitable Emma Woodhouse continues to win the loyal hearts of each new generation of readers.

This is a Chiltern Classics edition of Emma. That means it's gorgeous! Chiltern Publishing was formed in 2018 with a vision to create the most beautiful classics. Austen's original books (particularly Pride and Prejudice) from the 1800's were their inspiration. All Chiltern books are a pleasure to behold and to handle with  wonderfully detailed covers, sparkling gilt edges, creamy pages and stitched binding.  Hardback, but dainty - not too heavy, so good for reading in bed! They make beautiful additions to your bookshelves and gorgeous gifts. Don't miss the matching journals.
